COVID-19 vaccine delivered through inhaler likely to be ready in next few weeks

A successful COVID-19 vaccine administered through an inhaler could be available in the next number of weeks, it has been reported.
Researches at Oxford University in the UK have been working on developing a vaccination for the deadly virus for the last few months.
One of the university’s professors from the Centre for Personalised Medicine has now allegedly said that their vaccine could be ready by August.
‘We are guessing that might be around August time,’ Professor Adrian Hill said during an online lecture.
‘It might be before if cases do not decline quickly as we expect.  Or [it could] be later if we run out of cases.’
He also reportedly said that the COVID-19 vaccine would come in an inhaler.
Researchers at Oxford are believed to be ‘80% confident’ that their new vaccination could work.
Drug company Astra Zeneca will produce 2 billion dosages of the vaccine if it is effective once it is fully developed and tested.
The Oxford University COVID-19 vaccine trials have been ongoing since April.
